Every once in a while a show hits TV and makes you think. Just not entertain but makes you look inward, question your reality, and ponder social Q’s. You Me Her is such a show.
Centered around a late 30 something couple, Jack (Greg Poehler) and Emma (Rachel Blanchard), who have hit a rough patch in their marriage. At the suggestion of a co-worker Jack dials up an escort to spice things up. Despite, his instant connection with the escort, Izzy (Priscila Faia), he’s unable to complete the transaction. Not wanting to complete wreak his relationship with Emma, he comes clean about the meet up. To his surprise, Emma, while upset, understands and wants to meet Izzy.
What ensues is a bit unexpected; Izzy and Emma connect. Not just in a friendship way, but in something real. From there on out we see Jack and Emma engage in a relationship with Izzy not just in a physical manner but in something honest and deep.
Going into the screeners I knew the setup but was expecting something quite different. Honestly, I was waiting for boom-boom music. Instead, I was pleasantly surprised with quick witty writing, great acting, and a thoughtful look into the hearts of people.
Luckily, I was able to chat up two of the stars; the wonderful Rachel Blanchard (Fargo, Flight of the Conchords) and Priscila Faia (Rookie Blue).
